    I think their "talent scout" feature is likely to be understood. Most people would think it's someone looking for a freelancer which will lead to more work elsewhere. Not someone whose using a Peopleperhour in-house person to a find a freelancer because they are unsure what to look for.

    I used to use it back in the day & really liked it. I freelanced on there offering aco!!!!ancy & business plan writing services.

  • I would like some advice on where to get into some freelance work! My speciality and work experience is in selection of apprentices, so interviewing and getting young people interview ready for job interviews they may have as well as helping with their cv's! Is there anything around for this kind of freelance work or any advice anyone can give! I am currently on maternity leave and looking at redundancy upon my return in November!

    Thank you!!

    I think Peopleperhour is pretty good compared to other websites in the same niche. I feel like the admins and customer service team are more "on the ball" than other websites such as freelancer or Upwork. But maybe it's just me...

    Do you think PPH would be good to find someone to check in & out guests at a holiday rental if I'm not available? Thank you

    It's a great site. I've worked on there and I regularly hire people from there. Mostly writers, social media bobs and researchers.

    I've had a very BAD experience on all fronts with eLance(Upwork) & Freelancer. Problems you just don't get with PeoplePerHour.

    No, PPH work from home.
    People only get upset
    when their expectations are not met.
  • Not all people on PPH work from home.
  • Yes, I think this would work as long as you specify that they need to physically visit the property. I would certainly do this to earn some extra income.
